My song and prayer

Our family is in Portugal.  Getting some much-needed rest and refreshment.  My sweetie shared a song that is meaning a lot to him, and now it's my turn.  This song has rocked my world for the last few months.  And each time I listen to it, I just love it more and more.  I drove around the last city we lived in singing it LOUDLY many times as I used it as a prayer for my own life and for that country that our hearts grew to love.  It's also my prayer for the region of the world that we get to live in.  I mean, it's like a heart cry.  I hope you'll take a couple minutes to listen and to know my heart a little more...but also to draw YOUR heart to the purposes God has for you in your city, on your street, in your home.  "We are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation"...a people who GET to be part of God's plan.  "We are the church, we say REVIVE this earth!!"


Come set Your rule and reign
In our hearts again
Increase in us we pray
Unveil why we're made
Come set our hearts ablaze with hope
Like wildfire in our very souls
Holy Spirit come invade us now
We are Your Church
We need Your power
In us

We seek Your kingdom first
We hunger and we thirst
Refuse to waste our lives
For You're our joy and prize
To see the captive hearts released
The hurt; the sick; the poor at peace
We lay down our lives for Heaven's cause
We are Your church
We pray revive
This Earth

Build Your kingdom here
Let the darkness fear
Show Your mighty hand
Heal our streets and land
Set Your church on fire
Win this nation back
Change the atmosphere
Build Your kingdom here
We pray

Unleash Your kingdom's power
Reaching the near and far
No force of hell can stop
Your beauty changing hearts
You made us for much more than this
Awake the kingdom seed in us
Fill us with the strength and love of Christ
We are Your church
We are the hope
On Earth
